Feature in Art in America of March 2009, on Steve McQueen’s feature film Hunger.

Steve McQueen’s eloquently harrowing first feature, about IRA hunger striker Bobby Sands, explores the political and spiritual costs of violence to onself and others.“ The two-page piece (pages 75/76/78) features a number of film stills from Hunger and other works by McQueen and a photograph of McQueen directing Michael Fassbender as Bobby Sands in Hunger: “Like McQueen’s earlier works, Hunger highlights the materiality of filmmaking to ratchet up the physicality of the experience on view.…”
